Supporting councils and providers in their commissioning and market shaping activities is a key element of our work.
We support councils to develop across strategic commissioning, market intelligence, co-production and operational market management, so that they can best facilitate and shape diverse and sustainable markets for high quality care and support which benefit the whole population.
Homecare cost of care toolkit
We have co-developed a Homecare cost of care toolkit with ARCC-HR Ltd. The Excel-based toolkit will help councils and partners obtain a shared understanding of the costs of providing home care. The toolkit is open access and so can be freely used by all councils and providers.
Commissioning and market shaping library
This is a collection of resources, reports and material that cover a broad range of topics relating to the commissioning of social care and support.
